Form Recognizer: language detection into Layout model?

Keir 20 Reputation points

Current state as I have understood:

Read model: document as input, ocr exists, language detection exists (multiple languages returned)

Layout model: document as input, ocr exists, table detection exists, no language detection

Text analytics: text as input, output 1 single language

End goal: to get table detected & most popular languages detected via one API call (otherwise time-consuming etc)

  1. Is there possibility to combine models together? (e.g somehow include language detection into Layout model like Read model has)
  2. Is there possibility to detect (multiple) languages by text?

    Hi @Keir , thank you for taking the time in sharing the use case with us.

    As layout model does not support language detection. There is no such way to combine models, one option is custom composed model. Since your use case is different towards language detection.

    The product team is interested in your scenario. PG wanted to understand more about it in order to provide the best feature. If possible, could you please send us an email to with the below details so that we can set up a call between you and PG to discuss more on this?
